Investment capital could be an enormously powerful driver of a sustainable future.
Success will depend on how well investors can rigorously quantify 'impacts' alongside ‘ESG’ risks and optimise sustainability decision-making at scale for trillions of dollars in assets.
In this talk Dr Tim Wittig, Oxford Martin Visiting Fellow, will discuss developing a single common information architecture for the quantification of sustainable investing approaches. Based on recent innovations in data science, artificial intelligence, and the 'logistics of data,' as well as established best practice such as the Common Task Method (CTM), this proposed architecture will address the key failures and asymmetries of the current ESG data ecosystem and create a durable infrastructure for quantified empirical solutions for any sustainability challenge. If deployed concertedly at scale with the proper capitalisation, resourcing, networks, and technology, this approach has the potential to transform the global investment landscape as well as the future of human society and our shared planet.
This is a joint event with the Oxford Martin Programme on Biodiversity and Society
